On August 2, Air Transat celebrated the launch of its brand-new direct service between Vancouver and Quebec City, becoming the first and only airline to operate this route.
To mark the inauguration of the new route, the 163 passengers of the very first TS969 flight from Vancouver were welcomed in a festive manner at YVR. This occurred a day after 185 passengers boarded the inaugural TS968 flight from Quebec City’s Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB).
The route will be operated by next-generation Airbus A321neoLR aircraft, which feature spacious cabins and state-of-the-art in-seat entertainment systems and have the lowest fuel consumption and greenhouse gas (CO2 and NOx) emissions in their class.
This summer, Air Transat will also offer direct flights from YVR to Montreal and Toronto.
